A recount just knocked Virginia’s statehouse out of Republicans’ hands — by a single vote

The recount of the vote tally for a key race in last month’s Virginia House of Delegates elections concluded on Tuesday. And incredibly enough, when the dust settled, the Democratic challenger led the Republican incumbent by just one vote — an outcome that, when certified, would deprive Republicans of their majority in the chamber.

The certification process overturned one vote, resulting in a tie, with the result to be determined by random draw.
Now I know there's a reason you shouldn't blame others when you do something wrong, and that reason is: you might get caught and have to apologize to a bunch of dumb peasants.

Random, what a process we've got.
